Yes, I’m divorced and a dad. I’m 31, with two sons.
I am the dad in Target, browsing the toy section with my 4-year-old as he tries to pick “just one.” I’m a little annoyed that he’s taking so long, but so happy just watching him. I don’t rush him in his decision. “Picking out a toy is tough,” I say to him, laughing a little. Suddenly she walks by with her cart, and looks at us with a smile. I smile back, wondering if it’s me or my son she sees. Hopefully it’s both of us; I mean we are a package deal. She seems sweet, kind and beautiful. She keeps moving and I don’t say anything. I’m a single dad, so I must have drama. It is what it is; at least that’s what I tell myself.
Often times, I am viewed as the hot guy with baggage, especially to women who don’t have any kids. If they took a little longer look they’d see something different. They see all the great qualities they want in a guy are in me, because I’m a dad. Crazy…I know!
Women want a man who is caring and compassionate, yet strong and courageous. They desire a man who is honest and sincere, down to earth and stable. To be a good father, I have no option but to possess those qualities and the ones I’m not born with; I learn as my kids grow. Patience and compassion are paramount in life to raising children. And love? Love is something as a father I know better than most.
We are the easiest guys to date because we aren’t needy; we get all the love and affection we could want from our kids. We can offer you those things because we understand their importance, and when we get to see you finally, we have so much to give. Take a chance on the divorced dad, and allow us to show you what makes us so special. Allow us to show you the men our kids love. In a dating universe full of guys who may be up to no good, we are the ones who want more than a one-night stand. We understand the value of companionship.
